iPhone 12 mini, max, pro starting soon! (5am pt or 8am ET)!

Finally a new phone with a new look!

I’m still using my 8+. Waited for several years.......
You can still go to the website and set up your accounts/payments. Use your credit card to take advantage of the extra warranty and cellphone insurance for 90 days.

Cibc has it. U lost ur phone within 90 days = u pay a deductible and get a new one.



This is going to be like iPhone 4 sale!
Covid19 = demands > supplies.

AND ITS 5G! Finally, we can experience the faster speed.
Maybe we will use Huawei 5G network since our government hasn’t say anything yet. If so, our plans would be a lot cheaper.

I think you can also preorder from the carrier website as well.

Won't be anything like the iPhone 4. It's 2020, not 2010, regardless of a pandemic or not. The last time the iPhone was scarce in stock, Steve Jobs was still alive and in charge.

Also, the Canadian iPhones won't be getting the 5G version.

So why exactly is this in the hot deals again?

You're missing the fifth option, which is None of the above. This poll is incomplete.

If only apple would have bundled it up with some free airpods to make this a decent deal but ya, not really a hot deal considering theres going to be enough stock

Huawei 5g will be cheaper? Yeah right. Our telecoms will profit on all the savings.

I might be wrong on this, but from what i understood Mmwave isn't compatible in Canada yet, even if you have 5G in your area

Even if you get the 5G version from the US, there's no carrier in Canada that even has it right now. It won't be available to its fullest potential for at least another 24 months most likely. Rogers 5G isn't the same or true 5G that the US has. Like the article above states, you'll only get a 10 percent difference which is extremely minor.

Most people are waiting for the iPhone 13 which is when they will actually have valid reasons to upgrade. This is more like an iPhone 11S (without the S moniker of course).

From Telus and Rogers website = 5g bands

I thought they support the 5g networks here.

The mini and pro max aren’t even going up for pre order until next month. At least do some research if you’re going to post a non-deal
